I have about 5 broken quests now and they have stopped updating, quest pointers don't show up anymore. Time to pack it in I think, if they ever patch it for the PC it's unlikely that it wil be retroactive ad I put too much time in just to just start over. Got about half way in the main quest, which was ok I guess.

Look up the quests in UESPWiki, then use the console (~) ingame to manually make the quests update. The command is something like setstage [questid] [stagenumber], both variables available in the wiki sites.

Alt Gr toggle is not avalable in the console. Can't do [] regardless of what keyboard layout I use. From what I could gather from Wikipedia it should be, it's just not. Whaterver windows is doing to produce the keys corresponding to an American setup, it's not happening inside the console.

It might be the ****ty keymapping I suppose, but I can't reset to default, that function is likely in conflict. Either way, nothing happens when I try.

You don't need to type [] in the console. Just type for instance setstage ms12b 60

You can now enjoy the imposible inventory with voice activation for every mouse click and navigation. Crouch to crouch in the game world. It wil be hell on your knees, but imagine the immersion.... Awesome !

Finally a drawback for the overpowered stealth.

Tonight I spent a good while searching Blackreach for the Dwemer transcription thingy, that place is just huge, in Morrowind I was always irked that Dwemer ruins weren't as sprawling as they looked from the outside, no such complaints here.

One thing I'm not getting is a sense of dread, I dunno what it is about Morrowind's world that inspires fear and wonder, something about the sense of history or the fact that more is left to the imagination, on the other hand Nordic tombs full of Draugr creeped me out for a good while, until I started being able to mop the floor with them, which I suppose is logical.

I also faced the first battle with Alduin, I'm level 36 and he hurt me pretty badly, it took lots of reloads and health potions but I'm not really into efficient levelling or godlike characters, I was glad for the challenge
Spoiler


I'm looking forward to "finishing" the game though, New Vegas is calling me quite strongly.

Still having fun with my second character, level 11 and I plan to be a bit more selective about quests. The Companions always sounded a bit stupid so let them be, and I'm still finding new quests/dungeons I never visited previously -

was a big challenge on Master, and I had to use up a valuable scroll of Storm Atronach to get past it.

He should have given the interface the spanking it deserves, I dunno maybe he tired himself out.

He probably played it on xbox. Don't think it's as bad on consoles.

this.

I'll be getting Skyrim for x-mas, since a lot of you seem to be really enjoying it. I only ever played Morrowind, and there's one thing it taught me: if you're not playing a Breton, you're doing it wrong ;)

Must be the 1.2 patch. Alduin couldn't damage me.

Playing a male Dunmer, your character's FUS ( i think) shout for whirlwind sprint sounds... just like a dog's bark.

So every time I sprint I immediately turn around to check there's no mad dogs chasing my arse.

I'll probably spend a few more hours messing around but I haven't got the motivation to wrap up any more major quest lines, the Mages, Bards, Thieves and the other begging freeloaders in Skyrim will just have to wait for my second coming ;)
